I like old hotels, and the Nord Pinus is really old. The positives: staff is friendly and welcoming. Rooms and spacious. AC works well in rooms (no AC in the public areas). Centrally located Negatives: we were there during the Rice Festival and the noise from the Forum Plaza went on until late in the night. If you are there... More

Perfectly located on the main square of Arles Grand Hotel Nord-Pinus offers a stay in a historical place - the photos from 60s in the lobby of the hotel show many well-known faces. Not the most luxury hotel, but with a very special great atmosphere - worth an experience!

This hotel is very beautiful, and ideally located in the centre of town. However, much is lacking for the price. The breakfast is basic and expensive and the bar often unstaffed. There is no room service either. The wifi doesn't work. More importantly, though, the service can be extremely unfriendly and unhelpful. I was made to feel awful for asking... More

Napolean slept in our room and it hadn't been refurbished sine he left. Very basic room and breakfast was also basic but good. Restaurant closed (april). Very strange but centrally located. Just plain odd but quite good fun.

Stayed here for a few nights ,asked for a quiet room which didn't come with views into the square , if you want to be involved in activity outside ask for rooms fronting the square which is filled with eateries including Van Gogh's cafe . Most rooms do come with noise as central area.Staying here is being part of history... More

The service from the staff was very good. Our room was ok but there was no mini-bar or refrigerator to keep my medicine cool which is essential. They arranged to keep them in the kitchen refrigerator until required which worked ok. Breakfast was pretty basic and of limited choice

Exactly the sort of hotel one hopes for and despairs of ever finding anymore. A place that feels unique--something apart from the global sameness, the brandedness generally encountered, even in the small ways that other hotels capitulate to in the name of some travelers' expectation. To enter the Nord-Pinu is to enter a rare loveliness and graciousness. An unhurried comfort... More

The staff are wonderful, personal, and very helpful. The location is great for visiting Arles in foot. Car parking is taken car of by the staff. The hotel has a lovely historic feel, but there are challenges if you need modern amenities. When we were there, internet reception was very sporadic, even at the reception area. We had two rooms,...

In the centre of medieval and Roman Arles lies this elderly hotel with parts of the Roman Forum within its structure. All the tourist sites and dozens of cafes and restaurants are within 10 minutes walk. The flip side is its a nightmare to get to in a car and parking is very limited and needs booking in advance.
